William Montgomery Watt's seminal study of the close relationship between religious beliefs and political doctrine in Islamic countries is now available for a new generation of readers. His introduction presents a clear and comprehensive survey of the development of Islamic political thought, from the politico-religious structure established by Mohammed and his immediate successors, to its current status in the modern world. Essential reading for all undergraduate students of politics and Islamic studies.
